Windows permissions for the "Package Delivery" folder (and sub-directories) are being changed and this is causing errors in creating directory structure and downloading package files. This is because the Package Server Agent is unable to modify these directories.

Please see the following steps to reset permissions on the GUID folders contained within Package Delivery, or other areas where packages may be stored.
